“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls”
– Pablo Picasso
An arts and music education plays a significant role in a student’s academic achievement. Students who have the opportunity to take music and art classes do better overall in their studies than students who do not have these same opportunities. For example, there is a strong correlation between a student’s music education and their understanding of math.
Beyond the pragmatic benefit that arts and music provide, there is the sheer joy of being able to learn how to play an instrument, write a song, draw a picture, or simply express one’s artistic creativity.
That is why we are again offering the Bill Bradley Arts Mini-Grant and School-Wide Grant applications.
Applications are now open for the 2017-2018 school year and are due by midnight on October 23, 2017. Click here to apply now!
